Both the latest release and the
neomutt branch in the repo are supported.
Other feature branches may work, but there is no guarantee.
NeoMutt is available in the
[community] official repository as
can be installed with pacman.
pacman -S neomutt
If you want to customize the options or use unmerged features, retrieve the
svn and edit it.
svn checkout --depth=empty svn://svn.archlinux.org/community svn update neomutt cd neomutt/trunk
The sections of interest are:
build: you can change the compile options after
./configure. In particular, this is where you have to add the cache backend you want to use if you want something else than the default.
source: you can change the
neomuttwith the branch you want to use. This is only for the
neomutt-gitpackage in the AUR.
Neomutt can be updated together with other packages in the repositories.
If the package in the Arch Linux repositories is outdated, first ensure your mirrors are up-to-date:
pacman -S reflector reflector --verbose --latest 5 --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
To remove NeoMutt along with any dependencies that will be orphaned use the following command:
pacman -Rsc neomutt
Arch Linux does not have separate
-dbg packages. In order to debug
you must first compile with debug symbols. Edit the
PKGBUILD adding the
Build and install the new package which contains debug symbols.
Now you can follow the guide for debugging NeoMutt.
